In total, 13 participants took part in the competition.
The participating groups came from different universities, schools and from several robotic institutions.
The participating countries were Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovenia.
The challenge was to pick up metal balls from a moving turtle bot and place them in a basket located at the robot’s starting point.
The winner was the one who had the most balls in his box after eight minutes.
The RT Lions robot consisted of a large four-wheeled chassis, the robotic arm Sawyar (Leonart).
The orientation of the entire robot was realized by two sick sensors, a camera and a trained CNN software.
